You Know You've Made it When You're being sued

I've discovered a new breed of SC-mean men. I told you all about the mean girl emailing me. Well know said mean girl's husband is after me (please note: I know these people and thought they were friends of mine. I emailed her to invite her to socialites at the shore and she hated on me instead).

During my morning board meeting with Hermes (where she rides her exercise bike and bosses me around read: tells me what to do and asks for compensation), I received an email  of the most uncomfortable kind. I went white, started trembling and felt stomach flu symptoms. He threatened to sue me over 1 line in my book (fiction novel) and 1 line in my blog!

Preppy people! I am trying to get by in this world the best I can dodging sociopaths and evil at every turn. I'm trying to spread preppy mafia love, and pink & green joy. I write to entertain, take our minds off the war etc.

Obama has international media and negative things said about him daily! It is called the 1st amendment-Freedom of Speech!

 
Get over yourself! Or I'll monogram you.
To feel better I went straight to TJ Maxx for pillow shopping and 2preppygirls.com for more monograms.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
You sue me?
My lawyer won't let you!

Never contact me again!

  1. I am SO sorry you're having to deal with nasty mean people who are just completely insane. Some people just thrive on negativity (this person reminds me of that uber-b@*%h in the Overnight Socialite book?) Anyways, you are loved by so many more people than this one negative, so don't let her get you too down!!

  5. I am so sorry that this has happened to you! Anyone doing any good thing encounters opposition. Hopefully this will pass soon and you will not let it stop you from spreading the fun of being preppy. Eat some chocolate and watch an old movie and you will feel lots better!!

  6. Darling, sweetest angel, although I am not an attorney, I think it may be wise to CEASE posting about them and their threat! YIKES! Believe me when I say, from wwaaayyy down here in Biloxi MS, I dont know any of the particulars but un poquito CYPA (cover your preppy ass) may be in order! Not that you have anything to cover but for goodness sake lets not GIVE them any gifts!
    Secondly a wise old farmer once said~ they cant get your monogramed goat if they dont know where it's tied!
    Mean people exist, the kids call them haters, appropriately, and sadly enough some were once our friends.....
    So I leave you with one last bit of Queenly advice~ Keep Calm and Carry On!

  13. I always enjoy when I get sued. Just ignore and let your lawyer take care of it. I'm sure it will all work out. Hope your weekend turns out better!

  14. Wow. I'm so sorry you are having to deal with this!!! I think that some people are just really jealous when someone else has great success, and rather than celebrate with them..they try to tear them down.

    Chin up!

  15. How horrible that you're having to go through all of this! You need some monogramming and retail therapy! xoxo

  19. Don't people have better thing to do rather than to try to make your life miserable. I'm thinkin' maybe the Preppy Mafia should pull out the big guns here and just let Calgon take you away!

    Have a relaxingly blessed weekend dear girl!!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I think you deserve some new shoes and probably some monogrammed slipcovers. You'll feel lovely in no time!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh my love! I can't believe they are doing that to you! You are so much better than them and I hope they drop it soon. Keep on trucking girl and keep your head held high! You have an amazing support group I'm sure and don't let them bring you down :)

    ps: I'd LOVE to snag one of those "preppy mafia" stickers!!! :)

  22. I will say it- bitches!
    You, my dear, are fabulous and totally undeserving of this. Keep that preppy chin up! xo

  23. Darling,

    It is so classless to sue. Why did you ever associate with them? Really puppet, you should mind the company you keep, look at all the trouble it has caused you.

  24. I am so sorry! Meanness gets people no where.
    I simply adore you, your book and the blog. Keep your chin up and let Rick handle those kooks. You have more monogramming to do, and chardonnay to enjoy!

  25. Thank you everyone! You all make it better like the best boo boo bear I've ever met. Note to self: invite someone to your home, beware they may be mean to you and tell you they "used" to stick up for you when ppl made fun of you behind your back-Nice. MC!

  26. My gosh, Honey! I'm trying to find a positive here. Maybe the storyline for a new novel! xoxo

  30. Worry not, o fair one! Welcome to success!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Keep your chin up! Those people are clearly only jealous of your success. Don't you worry about a thing!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Some people are a TINY bit dramatic. I'm not sure I'd mind being monogrammed, though, but that's just me.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Such a shame!! Dont they have better things to do? Like redecorating, shopping.. maybe a vacation? he he. Pink and green are indeed fab.. unless the shade of green is an awful dingy shade of envy! Happy weekend to you!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I am not happy about this. I hate these kinds of people.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Well Beth, you have made it. When people sue you for the very first time. In my world it's a right of passage. I was first sued at the ripe age of 19. I have lost count. but you will always remember your first. Congrats.

    Always Bumby

  36. It's crazy! I'm so sorry. I was threatened last year and I am still sick about it. You just have to go on and ignore these classless people. It's a sue-happy world and they are all pathetic in my mind! Just get out your mono-brander!

    ReplyDelete
  37. What wannabes! They wish they were cool enough to get a nod in your book. Whatevs. Let's toast (Chardonnay, natch!) to their legal demise. In pink & green we trust...

  38. I am so sorry... you need some flowers from your hubby. It worked for me! (See my blog!)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh that is just the pits. You must be joking. You are a delight and the people giving you a hard time are just sour grapes. I am genuinely sorry to hear of all of this. You are undeserving.

    ReplyDelete
  40. That is so dumb - I don't get it... Hope it goes away soon.
    love to you

  41. ugh, they sound AWFUL and so silly! i am SO excited to get your book and share it with the other girls on teh ship! it is so generous of you to send a copy to us :D
    and you're right...if they stop talking, you're boring, and who wants to be boring, anyway?
    your blog is too cute!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Well, you could say the more they are harrassing you, the more SHOPPING you get to do! That's a good thing!
    Seriously, this is terrible, but clearly they are behaving this way because they feel guilty and aren't very happy people!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh no! But I guess you're right. You've made it when you are sued! Keep your head up and keep doing what you're doing! You know you're in the right.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm confused...one line in a blog and your novel have them convinced it is about them? Wow, I don't think I've ever heard of anyone holding that a high an opinion of themselves. I've said it before and I'll say it again today, some people need to build a bridge and get over it! And in the words of some very wise girls over at www.thera-ware.com, "Your opinion of me is none of my business" so sugar scrub these people out of your life and never think about them again. If they decide to persist, Rick will do take care of it all. Happy Saturday to you!

  45. Wow! Good luck with this hun! Fight on! (With class of course! ;) )

    ReplyDelete
  46. Why are people in this Country such sue-ers? I hope this is resolved in your favor real soon.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'm positive they haven't a leg to stand on. There is always that disclosure in any fiction of "any similarity between characters in this work of fiction to any in real life is purely coincidence etc etc etc"

    Hang in there hon (hugs)

    ReplyDelete
  48. I don't even know what to say! I'm sure that if you were more of the *bitchy type*, they wouldn't be so quick to take advantage of you. Maybe we both need to learn how to be better bitches. Is there even a class for that?

    Hopefully your lawyer can make it all go away soon.

    By the way, I'm in the middle of reading your book and so far, I love it!

  49. I spy another book in the making...XXOO

  50. Take it from a Philadelphia Lawyer, people who threaten to sue you do not.Generally when a party is going to file suit they just do it and serve you with the Complaint. Furthermore, defamation or libel suits are quite hard to win...so tell that clown to lock and load and prepare for a Dragonetti Counter Claim!!
